Raw Nerve is that and more!
15 February 2011 | by (Gallup, New Mexico) – See all my reviews

Wow.

OK, a celebrity interview series with William Shatner hosting. The joke almost writes itself, doesn't it? No! Heck No! There is no doubt that in many regards the iconic Shatner winds up being a comedy/self parody element rather than a "serious" talent. This interview series shattered that perception for me.

If you want something in depth, that really gets to the essence of what has made a celebrity what they are today, a real honest glimpse of what makes them tick, instead of the plug for recently made material and a couple of gratuitous cliché "funny moments", this is the series you want to watch - forget the late night talkies. No BS! The first of these I saw, I thought it had to be a fluke. Luck. No one gets a celebrity to expose themselves this way! After I'd seen three or four more, and each interview reached that same level of intimacy, I knew this wasn't luck. This was indeed talent. Maybe it is the crew behind the scenes doing the magic, but Shatner is putting the face on it, and he is not just pulling it off, but performing absolute magic.

Wow.

If you've been avoiding this only because of the camp factor involved with things William Shatner, do yourself a big favor, put that aside, and watch two episodes. You won't regret it. Heck, you'll be hooked.

If you can point to a better celebrity interview series, please email me directly, because that is something I want to see! I _have_ to see the rest of these, even if the interviews I haven't seen yet are only shadows of the couple episodes I've seen.

10 out of 10. Kudos, Shatner!
